Deluge Fountain (Sintflutbrunnen)

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Sights
Since 1962, the impressive Deluge Fountain can be admired in the southern part of the Rose Garden behind the Congress House. Citizens of Coburg once gave it to their Duke Carl Eduard to commemorate the beginning of his reign in 1905. One year later, the bronze casting of the monumental group of figures was inaugurated as the Carl Eduard Fountain in the presence of the ducal couple. It stood in the middle of the park area until it was moved as part of a redesign of the Rose Garden. The Deluge Fountain is the work of the Coburg artist Ferdinand Lepcke and a copy of an identical fountain in Bromberg, Prussia at the time. The sculpture shows how people and animals try to save themselves from the floods during incessant rain.
